Global Alcohol Policy Conference

Data: de 4/10/2017 a 6/10/2017
Local: Melbourne

About the Conference

The international Global Alcohol Policy Conference (GAPC) is the leading forum for the world’s alcohol policy makers, researchers and practitioners.

GAPC 2017 will be co-hosted by the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE), Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA), National Alliance for Action on Alcohol (NAAA) and Global Alcohol Policy Alliance (GAPA).

The conference will be held over three days from Wednesday 4 to Friday 6 October 2017 at the Pullman Albert Park Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

This conference’s theme of Mobilising for Change – Alcohol policy and the evidence for action builds on earlier conferences’ translation of evidence into action and recognises the increasing momentum around the world to stop harm caused by alcohol.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that alcohol consumption caused 3.3 million deaths in 2012 – nearly six percent of all deaths worldwide. With a multitude of short-term and long-term health risks associated with alcohol consumption (including alcohol poisoning, increased cancer risk, motor vehicle crashes, alcohol dependence and alcoholism, homicides, suicides, stillbirths, heart disease and stroke), communities are often desperate for effective measures to stem the tide.

GAPC 2017 forges links between the evidence and action using rigorous alcohol policy research to inform effective responses at local, state, national and international levels.

Previous conferences have also focused on advocacy, overcoming vested interests in alcohol policy development, and the need for international collaboration. GAPC 2017 will maintain this tradition.

Each day of the GAPC 2017 will be distinct. A diverse range of speakers, will provide opportunities for discussion about their research and experience and how these can be applied to alcohol policy environments and reinvigorate efforts to reduce alcohol-related harm worldwide.

This three day conference will explore a range of themes, including:

Advocacy and leadership
Emerging and innovative research
Vested interests

Use #GAPC2017 to join the conversation.

Please note: GAPC 2017 is not open to any person who has a conflict of interest due to financial relationships, direct or indirect, with the alcohol industry.
